It's the one thing they can't do. They can make you say anything - anything - but they can't make you believe it. They can't get inside you... They could not alter your feelings, for that matter you could not alter them yourself, even if you wanted to. They could lay bare in the utmost detail everything that you had done or said or thought; but the inner heart, whose workings were mysterious even to yourself, remained impregnable.
- Nineteen Eighty-four, George Orwell
We will hopefully live longer than the Big Brother who double-speaks and oppresses its own people - at least democracy will.
